    A new S-Video cable - $1
    Powerpoint 2003 (Retail) - $2 - The CD key looks... odd, but the disc is legit, so I dunno what the hell is up with this.
    Windows ME install CD w/key - $1

    Edited to add: My local dollar store got like 30 copies of Without A Paddle - on UMD Video. That was... a little bit freaky to see.

    Just got my DJ Dao Platinum Edition Evolution IIDX controller in the mail yesterday. Was planning to get a Real Edition Single but I saved about $300 buying a used PEE instead. Totally happy with it though. Has Sanwa buttons and Omron microswitches, so it's just like the arcade. Looks so much better when the LED and turntable lights are on, so the pic doesn't really do it justice:

    Why did you waste $1 on Windows ME?

    I think WinME is worth $1... I use it for my Dreamcast modem tunneler.

    Because it's worth $30 shipped on eBay for some godforsaken reason? :P

    Finally moved in to my townhouse. Got a one year lease on the place and am starting to unpack. I haven't slowed down though in the way of finds. Over the past week I've gone a bit Atari crazy. Cox Communications just installed my internet so I figured I'd jump on and post what I've been up to:

    From Play N Trade / Thrift:



    Dark Cavern
    Demon Attack (Activision, Blue label)
    Desert Falcon
    Frost Bite
    Off the Wall
    Omega Race
    Pressure Cooker
    Revenge of the Beefsteak Tomatoes
    Robot Tank (Blue label)
    Skateboardin'
    Spiderdroid
    Sssnake
    Water Ski (7800)

    Everything was 2 bucks except Off the Wall which was 10 at a local game store.

    Play N Trade:



    2 bucks each except King Kong at 10.

    Armor Ambush
    King Kong
    Outer Space
    Roc N Rope

    Thrift Store / Bookman's

    TJ & E came from Bookman's, everything else Thrift.



    More 2 dollar 2600 games...

    Keystone Kapers
    Megamania
    Outlaw
    Seaquest
    Sky Jinks
    Spider Fighter

    Genesis - Toejam & Earl - 6
    NES - Wheel of Fortune (complete) - 2

    The last lot of stuff is from my friend Nez, who used to collect and post here. I'm gonna buy out his 2600 collection, but he could only find a few things when I went over to visit. I know he has a TON of other carts that I don't have, just can't find them yet. Here's what I brought home so far though:




    Bowling
    Laser Blast
    Mission-X
    Robot Tank
    Sea Hawk (factory sealed)
    Galaga (7800)
    Word Zapper

    all boxed

    Donkey Kong Junior (loose)

    Keyboard Controllers boxed
    Empty boxes for Dark Caverns 2600, and Frenzy and Zaxxon on Colecovision.

    and my personal favorite...a completely mint and boxed Star Raiders for 2600.

    Second Picture

    7800 - Hat Trick

    2600:

    Asteroids
    Gunslinger
    Missle Command
    Sea Hawk (loose)

    The sears games are quite common but I don't have those variations.

    A ton of manuals for 2600 / 5200 / 7800, M Network brochures, Atari brochures, overlays, ect.

    Xybots, Tournament Cyberball & Steel Talons factory sealed for Atari Lynx.

    Epyx controller, and lastly, an empty shell for a 2600 VCS in awesome condition, which should make a nice replacement if I ever come across a nasty but working unit.

    Phew...that is all. Over the next few days I'll be unpacking the collection and constructing a game room, I'll throw pics up once it's done.

    Snagged Dragon Ball Origins for Nintendo DS from Micro Center for $7. The game has a sticker on it saying it's a used copy but it has the manufacturer's shrinkwrap still intact on it.

    A few various finds over the past few days:

    Two Sony PS2 dualshock controllers in black: $4 each (thrift)
    One 5-switch 'Power Center' to add to my growing stock (3 now!) in the gaming rig: $7 (thrift)
    Disc only Bust a Groove 2, one of my holy grails: $30 (Play n Trade)
    Boxed Dreamcast controller with blue logo: $10 (Play n Trade)

    I also got 3 Xbox controllers... and the guy got me the cords from two dead ones that I was able to use to repair two others I've gotten that had bad cords.

    Well worth the price. One of the more enjoyable Dragon Ball games I've played.
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    Hrm, you guys asked for more pics of the dock sale. These were taken with my phone so please excuse their "height".

    On the left, in the foreground you can see the bins of misc, and in the background is the clothes area. Really not that much of an interesting area; it leads up to the checkout so sometimes people will decide not to get things and they'll end up in these bins. One time I found a Bose DVD player, in unknown working condition, that way.

    (Ooooh, I'm dual-wielding pics.)

    On the right you can see a snapshot from one of their VHS bins. It contains VHSs, some CDs, and the occasional DVD. This bin is on the opposite side of the building from the "media" area, where they keep most of the CDs, 8-tracks, video games (if they have any), and etc.

    lol, doesn't everybody need a copy of "Hambone & Hillie"?

    On a related note, the Found Footage Festival guys were wondering where all of the weird/taped VHSes that go to Goodwill end up. Well here they are!


    Something I pulled out of the VHS bin. Score!


    I actually got a bunch of electronics stuff today: adapters, remotes, some radio stuff, a roomba (for parts), but these were the most interesting things. It's a boxed Choplifter (SMS), Asteroids (PSX), some sealed CD of a band I'm not familiar with, and a PSX VCD player attachment thing.
    Check my auctions here! I am in the business of finding off-beat things, including video game stuff!

    View my collection!

    Wow its been awhile since I have been in the finds thread. Nice to see people still finding good deals on things. Collecting has completely dried up in my area, its a rarity to even find a classic game at all. I wish there was Play n Trades/ Value Villages/ Half Price Books in my area, they seem to have some pretty good stuff.

    Anyway, I was in GameStop today and picked up Advance Wars: Days of Ruin for $10 new. First DS game I've bought in ages, and it was a pretty good deal.
